People love being able to customize their stuff. This is one of the reasons why the Nintendo DS has had such luck in the portable gaming industry. The Nintendo DS provides a wide range of games, as well as an interface that allows customization. Through use of cartridges like the R4i Gold, you can take your gaming experience to the next level. With the right software, what kind of features can the R4i Gold provide for you? Lets find out.
Why not bring all of your music with you the next time you head out? With an R4i Gold card and the appropriate software, you can turn the card into an MP3 storage device, playing your songs through your Nintendo DS. This way, you do not have to take an entirely separate Ipod with you.
With the right software, your R4i Gold card can be turned into a movie storage and playing unit. Once installed, you can watch the movies of your choice through your Nintendo DS.
One of the unique uses of the Nintendo DS is as an e-book reader. Formatting the Nintendo DS card for e-books is very similar to videos and music. Once the right software is installed onto the card, you can download your e-books onto it, and enjoy them through your DS.
While the Nintendo DS supports a wide range of games you can buy, there are even more free online. These ROMS are a lot of fun, and pretty easy to install onto your R4i Gold once everything is set up. With so many choices available online, you can have a nearly limitless supply of games to choose from.
While the Nintendo DS does support picture taking and editing, it is very limited. With the right software installed on your R4i Gold however, you can dramatically increase the range of possibilities. From having extensive photo albums to editing pictures through the DS options, you get more usability.
Much, Much More
The above options are only the beginning of what you can do with a Nintendo DS and an R4i Gold card. Although the original R4i Gold is no longer being updated, there are several newer versions of the card that can be purchased. Prior to picking one up, be sure it works with your version of the console, as some of the cards are model specific.
